.Not the Klrt Attempt.
It is not the ti r.-rt attempt of the
Florida legislature to obtain congres
sional investigation into the official
conduct of Judge wane. As early
as June 2, 1S93, the governor signed
a concurrent resolution which riecl?r
ed that the Judge ins conducting him
self in such a manner as to cause the
people of the state to doubt his integ
rity and to bring reproach upon the
state's fair reputation. Nothing came
of this action, and the judge professed
to regard it as a bit of political pleas
antry. The present resolutions adopt
ed by the legislature are more specific
than the former ones and were of suf
ficient gravity to attract attention at

THIRTY HOURS OF GRACE

Promise Made in Inaugural
Jefferson City. Mo.. Jan. 19. llov.
Folk has applied a heavy bot to the
lobbyists and corporation henchmen
who heretofore have brazenly crowded
the corridors and chambers of the cap
itol and they are packing up, practi
cally banished as outlaws after 30
hours of grace. The state legislature
of Missouri, for years the prolific
source of stories- of corruption and
scandal, is undergoing reform.

The lobby as an institution is to be
expurgated from the state assembly,
and to keep it away from dangerous
juxtajHisition of the statehouse all its
bejeweled members are to be allowed
to remain in Jefferson City only 3o
hours at a time with the motives of
their visit an open book ami their go
ings a matter of record.
As to whether (lov. Folk can carry
into effect his sensational ultimatum,
as expressed in four rules posted yes
terday, is a matter on which the lob
byists themselves manifest a meek
submissiveness. A bludgeon covered
with spikes is held over their heads by
the executive in the fact that if the
corporation retainers refuse to submit
investigations could be started that
might not be relished.
AVurnnl In MroMiiice.
In making the lobbyists walk the
plank the new governor simply enun
ciated four rules that were in com
port with recommendations made in
his inaugural message. In that docu
ment he told Missouri that the ejnicn
of corruption came to an end with the
establishment of the new regime.
